Well-organized and very personalized!
My trip with Peru Volunteer and Travel was awesome! I was only in Cusco for 2 weeks in August, but I was able to do all the tours and excursions that I wanted! It was so easy and PV Travel personalized my itinerary so that I didn't miss anything - I visited Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley, toured Cusco, and went rafting. In the 2 short weeks I was there my homestay family quickly became my Peruvian family. At the same time my volunteer experience at the elementary school was amazing. The kids were fun and I felt like I really made an impact. If you are looking for an organization where you can make a difference, but also see all the most important sites in and around Cusco, then I definitely recommend PV Travels! They will personalize your itinerary so that it is your perfect trip!Ryan, United States

Great Cultural Experience
This program is an excellent choice for those that seek to give a helping hand and who want to experience Peruvian culture. I had fun taking care of the kids at the daycare and felt blessed with my amazing homestay, which gave me a deeper and more fulfilling experience of the local life in Cusco. The places, the people, the experiences.. it was all amazing. I'm so happy I did this and I'm sure you won't regret it either.Cajus, United States

My volunteer experience has been amazing with Peru Volunteer taking care of all the details including those that I did not anticipate. Wish I could stay longer and pick up some Spanish and Salsa skills.
I worked at a school that was welcoming and so rewarding. Highly recommend the agency.Michael, United States

I had the most amazing time in Peru, first in the jungle and then with the most gorgeous children for my last two weeks. The tours I have been on were amazing and I can't wait for my 5 day trek with Machu Picchu as the pot of gold at the end! This message is a huge thank you to PV Travel, to you Shawna and Jimmy! Thank you so much for being patient with me and ensuring I was safe, well fed and had the best experience I could have!
Muchas GraciasRangimarie, United States

This trip exceeded all of my expectations
From the moment we were greeted at the airport to finishing our exit interview, my daughter and I felt as though we were well cared for by the staff at PVT. They arranged for us to stay in an apartment with other volunteers from around the world and the homeowner helped us acclimate to the Peruvian culture and delicious cuisine.
Our volunteer projects at the orphanage and school for the blind in Cusco were very rewarding. We were able to share our knowledge and skills and we felt that we received more than we gave. In the Amazon Jungle, we met volunteers and staff who dedicated their lives to jungle conservation.
We tended gardens of medicinal plants, cleared trails and went on hikes to encounter various flora and fauna. In addition, we were able to visit historical sites of the Inca, go horsebackriding, travel by boat in the jungle, take Spanish lessons, shop at local craft markets and visit the amazing Macchu Pichu. Our two weeks in Peru were filled with adventure and fantastic people who we will never forget. Thank you to all the staff at PVT for making it easy.Cynthia G., California, USA

PV Travel has exceeded my expectations providing an amazing service. This was my first time travelling alone to a different country not knowing anyone. PV Travel staff and the people of Cuzco, Peru make it effortless to create good friends. I was placed in a physical therapy project working with disabled children. I gained personal development and feel I made a tremendous impact in the children´s lives. Peru is a country like no other, with wonderful people, incredible history, and gorgous sites.
I would recommend this reliable service to anyone who wishes to travel, help out and meet good people.Jose Luis, España

Apurimac Was the Most Rewarding Experience of My Life
I knew that I wanted a real volunteer experience where I felt like I was making a difference my whole time in Peru. I was so impressed by the experience Peru Volunteer and Travel provided me in Apurimac.
I had heard that at other companies the projects are overrun by volunteers and there is more of a party life than a helping environment but that was not at all my experience!! When PV Travel says they choose the projects where your help is really needed they mean it.
I really felt like I was able to make a difference in my volunteer project and I would recommend PV Travel's programs to anyone! Thanks PV Travel!Kayley M., USA

I loved it!
I can't express with words my experience in Peru. PV Travel placed me in the zoo in Arequipa. I was so happy to be placed there because my help was really needed. The conditions were bad, the poor animals were sleeping in wet cages and food was really limited.
I am really happy that I contributed to this project. I am sure I will come back to Peru next summer because I feel like there is still so much to do. If you have the opportunity to come don't hesitate and be confident in the fact that PV Travel does an excellent job!Michael, United States

We were completely impressed with the services and friendliness
My husband and I decided to take our vacation this year volunteering and traveling in Peru with PVT. We were completely impressed with the services and friendliness of the staff of PVT. We did Helping and Traveling Package 1; it was the perfect fit for our vacation schedule from our hectic schedules here in the USA. My husband volunteered in one of the health clinics in Cusco and I participated in an animal rescue project here in Cusco.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our projects and picked up quite a bit of Spanish working with the community. The trip to Machu Picchu was more amazing than I had pictured in my wildest dreams. It served as the perfect supplement to this already amazing experience. We will definitely be coming back next year!Chrystie Scott, Los Angeles, CA, USA

My time in Peru
During my break between working and starting Law School, I decided to come to Peru to volunteer and see some of the amazing sights I had heard so much about. I researched quite a few companies but PVT had the best packages, services and prices. So I signed up for Helping and Traveling Package 2.
My time here in Peru with PVT was something I would recommend to anyone. It was not only rewarding, due to the volunteer project, but also enriching, due to the depth of historical cultural sights to visit. The volunteer week in the jungle was especially interesting.
The variety of flora and fauna and species of animals combined with the warm, fresh jungle air was the perfect end to my months in Peru. The volunteer work and experiences I had in Peru have further motivated me to pursue my law school education in the study of international human rights. Thanks Peru Volunteer and Travel!Josh, San Francisco USA

My experience volunteering and traveling
My experience volunteering and traveling with Peru Volunteer and Travel was the highlight of my young life. I was in Peru for a month during my summer vacation from university and was overjoyed by the work I got to do with young children in an orphanage volunteer project. The staff at PVT were amazingly friendly and helpful.
My weekend travels could not have been exceeded. The sites were gorgeous with history virtually seeping out of them. The service on the tours was impeccable and there was too much food to even consider finishing, which is great after a full day of hiking. I cannot wait to come back to Peru and I will definitely be recommending PVT to everyone I know.Maria, Brazil and the United States
